Francis Bacon:Seated Figure 1977
Seated Figure 1977, 1993
Etching and aquatint
Edition of 90, signed with stamp
164 x 121.5 cm

This Francis Bacon’s 'Seated Figure' etching derives from a series of studies Bacon carried out on the exploration of characters. The subject is unknown, as his identity is kept secret: throughout this series, Bacon sets out on a quest for representation of both mankind and pictorial dimension.

While the figure remains central, there appears to be a concern with his surroundings. The perspective creates a strong feel of enclosure, so that there is a rendering of an extremely suffocating environment: with this work, Bacon researches and questions matters of great psychological implications, as well as ones of physical investigation.
